Graduate School and Research Center In communication systems

Master degree in Mobile Communications

The Master is designed for those wishing to develop the necessary competences in the following fields: from physical layer (wireless communications theory and implementation aspects), mobile networking (based on IPV6), to applications (for smartphone, tablets…).

Master Students will have the opportunity to work with the OpenAirInterface, one of the World’s Most Complete open sources LTE base station and core network, which is increasingly used by top international universities and companies.

For more information about the Master's organisation and employment outcomes, please consult the following link.




The MSc MobCom aims at providing the theoretical background and the applied know-how for engineers in Mobile Communication Systems. 

The goal is to tackle the problems from a system viewpoint, taking a vertical cut and following a cross-layer design approach. This corresponds to both the most recent trend in research and to the most desired professional profile for engineers in this field. In fact, it is now well-recognized that problems related to physical layer transmission techniques (RF design, signal processing algorithms, channel coding and modulation), and upper layer protocols (link layer control, multiple-access, routing), that were traditionally treated in a separate fashion in wired networks, must be treated jointly in mobile communication networks. 



Sophia-Antipolis is considered as a major European region for telecommunications research and development in southern France. EURECOM, which is a consortium of academic and industrial partners, has established over the years a synergy with the local industrial environment on advanced research topics. 

During their Master of Science, students will benefit form the expertise of renowned industrial partners (Alcatel, Bouygues, SFR, France Télécom R&D, Philips, Thales, ST Microelectronics, Hitachi, Texas Instruments, IBM, BMW, SAP, Sharp, ESA) as well as the use of cutting edge technological platforms within EURECOM's Wireless Communication laboratory.

Language of instruction : English


Applications for 2016-2018 are until June 2016. Please refer to the application guide. Applications are to be made online only until the admission decision.

  • A Bachelor's degree (minimum 3 years of higher education) with high academic records in a relevant field is required: computer sciences, telecommunications, applied mathematics, electrical engineering...
  • A B2 level in English or equivalent is required. No prerequisite in French are expected as the courses are entirely taught in English.

Hi , I am a student of MS MOBCOMM from India. My experience here has been fantastic. EURECOM opened a new dimension of life to me. The level of education i had in this past 9 months has been really tough yet enjoyable. I feel myself really lucky to have been a student of this prestigous institute. Studying in a multicutural environment here is really an added experience. I just only wish if this study schedule of 9 months could have been make 12 months then i think MS students can get a bt more time to cope with the subjects. After spending this 9 months at this top level european institute I really dont regret for not going to US for my MS studies. I would really wanna come back here again after some years of industry experience for my Phd.

Thanks & Regards ,
